A glitch has been recently discovered in God of War III in which you can start a new game with a full arsenal of maxed-out weapons from the beginning.
The glitch still works after the 1.01 patch.
So, its like new game +, right? There you go.
I mean, there is that "hidden" option if you feel that you're not good enough to complete the game normally just like i.e. Contra, but it doesn't mean is a glitch.
Eh... according to an interview (I think with 1up), I heard one of the lead developers of GOW3 stating that they tested giving the player all the weapons on their second playthrough from the start, but it apparently 'totally broke the game'.
Hmm...wouldn't you be able to destroy the three judges right when you got to Hades if you had all weapons?
I believe I pointed this out when the first article about this glitch came out. If you had the cestus then you can smash the heart of gaia right at the beginning of the game. The game doesnt let you do that and you get an error for trying to destroy the judges.
when you reach the 3 judges in hades. when u have the nemean cestus before your supposed to and you smash the chains. it just freezes up at that point. it would be cool if it sent you str8 to the last boss from there :P
lol only if i had found about this NG+ before I'm already through 80% of the game on Chaos mode.. >.> Stilling in the Labby atm to save the kid.
TY JERK for not putting *SPOILER ALERT* in your comment. You can go burn in hell.
there is no spoiler there bro
I have not picked up my copy so I sure hope they don't patch this soon. I can use all the help I can get kicking zeus and the rest of the olympians arses.
This is kinda a no brainer. "Oh noes! There's a glitch!" Games have historically been full of glitches that people could exploit. No one forces you to use them. Don't be a cheater.
I was just playing GOW2 recently and the second playthrough on the same level will start you with everything you had at the end! Spoiler alert: There would also be no reason to fight Kronos, because you already have the electric weapon.
I wouldn't mind doing titan mode maxed out....may have to try this and see if it works
...and by the way Titan mode was pretty tough. There's no way to button mash on Titan mode. It just wont work. Took me about 14-16 hours. I had a lot of idle time keeping my son entertained and fed while playing.
The only problem I've had on Titan mode so far is the boss battles. You need to be more careful with the standard enemies but the only places I died repeatedly were the tougher bosses. Took me lots of tries to get past the first one.
...you really have to not so much learn the bosses attack patterns but learn how to best counter their attacks and then determine the best times to strike or dodge. The regular enemies seems to strike more often and use there heavy attacks and specials more often.
Boss battles and that son of a b!tch cerberus + satyr tag team after descending down from the labyrinth. Never in a God of War I've ever felt like throwing my controller at the TV, that almost did it for me.
@bboss yeah that was frustrating. Although when I finally beat it, it was like the easiest part of the game. I had a full magic bar and blades maxed out. All I had to do was go crazy on heavy attack combo on the cerberus for getting rid of the first two heads (I barely even got hit, took like 30 seconds). then I spammed the spartan army magic on the cerberus to kill him. Then down to two satyrs but they don't have any unblockable moves so that's pretty easy. I have a feeling that won't work on chaos mode though lol. Chaos mode SUCKS. The simplest fights in other modes turn in to the hardest fights.
I just kept kicking dogs till I got my rage up to full, then I took down one head, I spammed the spartan magic for the second, then I used my rage for the 3rd and killed off the satyrs
'b!tch cerberus + satyr tag team' Yeah that was the only time i had to put the controller down and walk away for abit. It was just too lame
Titan mode wasn't too bad. Once you got the enemies (their weaknesses and strengths) and the boss movements figured out, it was really easy. Of course, in titan mode, you 'can not' button mash. That's a strategy that will not work. Though, I found grabs and the bow to be my best weapons in titan mode. While you're avoiding hits, might as well strike back with the bow right?
use the claws of hades magic involving the gorgon, freezing the satrys and crushing them on the follow up
it worked! lmfao! i got the trophy "maxed out" add me and look at my trophies
lol so many glitches More replayablity!
this means a lot of n00bs will have the platinum for free without those agggghhh mother F*ker moments wile playing chaos mode.
u don't need to complete it on chaos for platinum, only titan. chaos is just there to give u a hard time if u so wish :p
Chaos mode is very challenging. I almost beat it but it gave me tons of horrible scenarios with enemies really wanting me dead.
I'm taking a break from b!tch cerberus + satyr tag team.. but i shall complete Chaos mode! >:) (Skipped titan so i can get the plat during my Chaos run!)
in a recent interview the devs said that when u completed the game u could not start a game with everything maxed as it would ruin the replay experience, but leaving a possible glitch in which enabled it could be something they did on purpose u know to allow it,if the company didnt want it but a worker thought it would be good idea to allow it maybe they didnt bring the issue up at the final bug meeting??
It was not added on purpose. Going to the Judges of Hades and smashing the chains/judges with the Nemean Cestus freezes the game.
I thought it was B-A-B-A-Start?
you forgot SELECT
You only use Select if you wanted two players.
lol i feel left out >.> I'm pretty sure I've tried that code many times... just dont remember where.. Contra maybe? God that game was awesome
My first play through on god (normal) difficulty collecting all items, powering up all weapons to max and killing every enemy 8h 33mins 54sec. My second play through (speed run) on easy using fear skin quad damage and switching on all collected power ups again killing every enemy 3h 57mins 22sec. This is not a dig at the game i love it, its f**king amazing.
Show the proof bro. My first play through on god mode collecting most of everything over 13 hours! you must be a gaming god! BTW this has nothing to do with this topic so I am assuming you are just BSing.
yeh i was skeptical about the time to complete but my first attempt on normal took me around 12-13 hours and that was without getting all weapons maxed, finding all treasure etc
First playthrough (Titan) - 10 hours, 35 minutes. Second playthrough (God) - 7 hours, 22 minutes. Third Playthrough (Spartan) - 6 hours. God of War 3 - Platinum I would leave the game on at times without playing it, as well.
i still waiting for some1 too hit this zone with GLITCH of WAR 3. but from reading how to do this 'glitch' id guess that its an old school cheat. 1 thing pops into my head..and uk gamers will remember this...'please games master,can i have a cheat for god of war 3 on the playstation?' if its deliberate..then i like it..but it shouldnt include the trophy.it makes me reminis about sonics up,down,left,right,a,b,c,start cheat.i must have dun that a 1000 times.
botty boy, go find a xbox game to play. I know it won't be easy though, but try anyway. GOWIII dominates every game in the history of xbox. True, so true!
I'm sure Epic will announce Glitches of War 3 at E3 2010.
yes, now i'm gonna go get my platinum :)
its not a glitch, its probably new game+( all weapons unlocked from previous game) gow was always like that.
Does this lower the credibility of trophies in the game? Essentially a cheat to go through and get more trophies?
one glitch I might have to take advantage of. I still need to beat the game first of course. Someone tell me why did I decide to play the game on GOD/HARD mode right from the start... I'm still trying to get out the room with Pandora...
Just finished the game on normal, which i found quite hard tbh. Harder then most games. Normal is normally easy,lol. Harder is normally normal. Christ it's like a riddle. Either way will play through it on harder. Great game.]
well now it can be finished in 5 hours
did you not read this? you have to complete the game first before you can activate this "glitch" so kindly gtfo you illiterate idiot
@badbond1 I think you didnt play GOw1 and GoW2 right?? Cause if you WOULD, you would notice that GoW3 is just the same game like GoW1 and GoW2, just with better graphics, nothing else. Same goes to Gears of Modern Warfare. So your comment, that it owns every 360 game is just LOL! I also played GoW3, it was a great experience but you are just retarded.
Even if god of war 3 is 1 and 2 in hd it blows everything on the 360 into little pieces of sub hd tears. So what's your phaggy point king of the d bags?
a SEQUEL being similar... OMG. I'm shocked. I'm going to have a go at Gears 3 is it's a third person shooter and Halo: Reach if it's a multiplayer FPS...
Examiner with the FTS... For the Spoil!
God Of War is an amazing game, it was well worth my purcase, i dont understand why people have to nit-pic the slightest things these days God Of War 3 is worth everyones time and money
it seems Sony Santa Monica is quick to fix the glitch....
damn Santa Monica is fast, i think they just fixed it lol
people will do anything to cheat! Are you that terrible at gaming you need to cheat everytime to attain success? Why don't you [email protected] just quit gaming? I'm so sick of people who are less than dirt, exploiting great games, works of art just so they can play it the easy way. What the f!cks the point in that. Just give up gaming. Wow great submission "spacesquirrel" /sarcasm.
